Hi, My Name is Roger, I have been teaching Drawing, Painting, and Sculpting for the past 14 years. My focus is on the process to reach the result. Talent is just the desire to do something. My approach to teaching takes your desire to create art and channels it into a productive process. Understanding basic compositions that please the viewer and the use of color, i can teach you to express your inner most desire, express your opinions and beliefs, and most importantly how to ask questions and captivate the viewer. Starting with basic steps that can be repeated each time you start a creation through to the final result of a finished work ready to hang, gift, or sale i will give you all the options and paths for you to find the most comfortable and effective approach. Book today and lets turn your dream to create art into a reality.

Roger was generous with his time and gave me more than I could have hoped for. He spent a good deal of time preparing clay models before our class which made th e time spent there extremely productive
I am exhausted from the class and look forward to trying out the techniques he taught me on my next works

Roger is very knowledgeable and I would recommend him to anyone for art lessons. I have learned so much from my very first lesson.

Roger was very knowledgeable about his craft. I learned a lot about watercolor painting, and some basics about painting in general. I have been painting for several years with oil and acrylic paints. Roger really gave me some cool insights to improving my painting skills. And this was just the first lesson!
